Most women are unhappy with the size of their calves. Some women are willing to take extreme measures like calf reduction surgery but do not even think about it! There are many effective training programs and diets to slim your calves down. If you have bulky, fatty or just disproportionately large calves we are here to help you.

If you want to slim your calf muscles down, you’ll need to do different types of exercises that are designed to reduce body fat while creating long, lean muscles. Also you need to change your diet.

You should only eat low-fat and low-calorie foods. Eat more vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts, lean proteins and whole grains. Avoid processed, fried, greasy and sweet foods such as pizza, chips and cookies. Start your day with breakfast. During the day you should eat small meals or snacks every three to four hours and stop eating when you feel satisfied! When you eat more often it helps reduce your calorie intake. Drink more water.

As for training programs you should avoid strength workouts. They will create only bigger bulkier muscles. Perform cardiovascular exercise that put emphasis on your calves. You can choose skipping, stair climbing, cycling or uphill running. You should definitely add running to your sports routine. Running helps reduce the size of your calf muscles and also burns calories and helps reduce overall body fat.

We’ve prepared some effective exercises to help you reduce the fat on your calves. This training program does not take much time and you can perform it at home. Work out three days a week making sure you have rest days between workout days. You may exercise several times a day, to get your minutes in, if you can’t do it all at once. While performing the exercises don’t forget to drink more water. Good Luck!
